SO this is the movie that inspired Bob Kane to create the Batman comics huh? Well Well! The story takes place in a spooky old mansion of mystery writer Mrs. Cornelia Van Gorder , where a number of innocent bystanders, chiseling crooks, murder suspects and cowering bystanders converge. When the police show up, everything seems to be under control -- and then The Bat strikes again! While I do give this horror mystery some credit and I am a fan of classic horror, it also has a decent story but this movie is incredibly average, there are no thrills and the movie ends more like a cliffhanger. The Bat (1926) gets a weak 5/10.
